Excellent piece of engineering. Very nice to drive, far superior to the Audi A4, and the Volvo S60. The responsiveness and handling was superior to the Mercedes C300, but not by as significant a margin as the Audi and Volvo. The steering and transmission are what I like the best about the 335xi, but the model I bought has the sports package so I think that contributes to a bit of a hard ride. If you like smoother rides and bump handling, look hard at the Mercedes C class, that car handled bumps well and had a very smooth suspension. Feature wise, the 335xi has more features than I will ever really use. I only wish the navigation system posted the speed limit for the stretch of road you are driving on, that is a feature I really like with the stand alone Garmin models. The heated seats are awesome and get so hot so quickly I wonder what impact that is having on the battery, but so far I've had no issues. If anything, this car has some extremely well thought out engineering in every single little detail. Now that I've driven this car for several hundred miles around the area, I doubt I'll be able to go back to another sedan again. I believe I will be driving BMWs for a long time to come.
My husband and I bought the 2011 BMW 335d and I can't say enough great things about this car. Before our purchase we read consumer reports car guide reviews and looked at multiple car models including Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, Toyota, Honda, and Infiniti. BMW had the best reviews of the models we were interested in and after test driving them I knew the BMW was for me. It just feels like a drivers car and I have never felt any car handle the way the BMW does. It grips the road on turns and in the rain, making me feel very safe no matter the terrain or weather conditions. The 335 is a small BMW but it has plenty of interior room for my husband (who is just a touch over 6 feet tall) even in the back seat. Our 335 is a Diesel and I was honestly worried at first that it would sound like a tractor or emit unpleasant fumes. I am glad to say BMW has put those concerns to rest! Gone are the diesel cars that sounds like a John Deere tractor and reek of fumes! My 335d purrs like a happy lion but that is about it! I am 100% satisfied with my wonderful car and it's performance.
Affordable performance with reasonable economy.
